FABULOUS STAY!! You cannot go wrong with this condo rental!
"Our first visit to U.S. Virgin Islands for a wedding and could not be more satisfied and pleased with our choice of accommodations here at Sue & Joe Giangarra's Watergate Villas East condo in Bolongo Bay!! Sue was just super with her prompt and courteous responses to email inquiries and securing the condo as well as her wealth of information and knowledge about the islands for our stay. Price CANNOT be beat anywhere on the islands for the location, living space, furnishings, and comfort of this condo!! For a family stay with 2 bedrooms/2 baths, kitchen and living areas as well as views and central location at Bolongo Bay, I and my family will definitely stay here again and again! Iggies is a great place for casual beach dining and the live music is just top notch! We rented a car for our week long stay and that was best for us, but if you don't it is very easy to get taxi service. The amenities provided by Sue and Joe in the condo CANNOT be matched by any hotel or other condos at a fantastic price. I just cannot say enough superlatives about how much we enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend Magens Bay, Coki Beach, Coral World (go on day when no more than one cruise ship is in port), Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay (St. Johns, rent a car and do r/t car ferry for a day...or 2!) and you must do a half or full day snorkel charter, we did two; The Cat VI (Marriot Frenchmans Reef) to Buck Island/Watermelon Cay National Wildlife Refuge for fantastic turtle snorkeling and we also did full day on New Horizon's and Breakaway Charters out of Red Hook to Christmas Cove and Honeymoon Beach (Water Island), both were well worth it. Thank you Sue and Joe for providing such a great place to anchor our first stay in St Thomas and you have made us a family of life long fans and return guest visitors to the USVI!"

"Renting this condo from Aaron was the smartest thing I've ever done in terms of family vacations. Soooo much more affordable than trying to deal with a resort and we got so much more bang for our buck! My family and I stayed here for a week (both my parents and my brother and myself); my parents shared the bedroom, my brother crashed on the futon, and I hogged the bed in the living room. All appliances you could ever need in a condo and some amenities left behind by other tennants (some spices, items under the bathroom sinks, and brochures and business cards from local restaurants and taxis).
While a little dated, this condo was clean and comfy. The condo is part of a multi-unit building overseeing Bolongo Bay. Be forewarned, Bolongo Bay is a rocky beach, not exactly something you can easily walk out on. Even down by the resort, it was rocky. Iggies' definitely made up for it, though. Was a nice, fun vibe place to hang out and get some great food.
I highly recommend renting from Aaron. Was a pleasant experience with everything, he answered every single question I had, and was very thorough in his details. I was extremely hesitant to go with VRBO, but Aaron just made this the best vacation we've ever had!!!! THANK YOU AARON!!!! :)"

"My boyfriend and I stayed at Paul's place in November during a friend's wedding at Bolongo Bay resort. All of our friends were staying at Bologno, and we were able to enjoy all of the amenities with them - snorkeling, paddle boarding, the pool and our favorite, the pool bar! The gorgeous stroll from Paul's to the beach was maybe 1 minute. It was the perfect location for us. The apartment was quiet, with ample space and air conditioning, and a fantastic shower. Paul was a wonderful host and available if we needed anything. We highly recommend taking the Bolongo sunset catamaran cruise as seeing the island at sunset from the boat was breathtaking. We plan on visiting again, and enjoying the delicious rum buckets from Iggie's! My only recommendation for your stay is to bring bug spray - the mosquitoes were unwanted beach visitors."

"This condo has a perfect location and is nicely furnished. It is within easy walking distance to several restaurants, a dive shop, the beach and pool. It is a short drive to the grocery store and Red Hook. We enjoyed eating on the balcony and also watching turtles and a spotted eagle ray from the balcony. It's very nice to have a washer and dryer in the condo and also to have WIFI. We have stayed in this condo several times and each time it is great to be back."
